Now that the holiday festivities are over, it's time to start thinking about the next big holiday that's right around the corner: Valentine's Day! Today we have an adorable share from Tricia of SNAP Photography. She writes, "I used the Easy Elegance Collection Borders for my kids Valentine's Cards - it's been snowing a lot this winter and I wanted to use the contrast of the snow with a heart for a more vintage theme.I love these for their simplicity but also that reminiscent feeling of old Valentine's cards. The Elegance Borders have an Art Deco feel that I think is perfect for the day of love, and with my kids I think it is so sweet." Thank you so much for sharing Tricia!

From a very early age I loved taking pictures and looking at them in magazines and books, but the art of photography captured my heart when I was a teenager, on my first overseas trip to Wales. From that point, I began shooting with a little film SLR and having my friend model for me. In college I took some digital photography and visual communication courses as part of my communication studies major, and decided to pursue a career in photography. I became a legal business and took my first paid client at age 20, and it's been quite a journey and adventure over the past nine years.
I secretly bought a mail-order 35mm camera when I was 15, and took lots of ordinary photos of animals and nature for several years. Although I majored in art and studied photography in college, my career started in marketing and advertising, from the client service end. Then I had the most beautiful baby, found my old camera and realized how much I love photographing people.
